- Windows 8 Metro Apps won't load 4 answers
When I open some apps from the Start Screen in Windows 8.1, it just closes right away and brings me back to Start.
It won't show me why it closed at all, but I looked in Event Viewer and it says in the description of the event:
Activation of app Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App failed with error: The remote procedure call failed. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.
This only started happening recently. It was not right after my Windows 8.1 upgrade, it happened about a week after. I don't remember anything I did differently that could've caused this.
Update: There is a more detailed error about what happened in the Event Viewer. It looks like a message from the original process. It's not a
wwahost.exe process, so there must be a native executable for the Calculator app.

Update 2: The Weather app also crashes, and this one runs under
wwahost.exe. I don't know if this helps anything.
